Calamari in Red Wine and Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I am not a fan of pre-made sauce so I used crushed tomatoes and fresh basil instead. I cooked the sauce down a little longer than 30 minutes. I too agree that even on the lowest flame, the calamari should be cooked for far less than 30 minutes. Other than that, this was yummy and easy!

Fragrant Millet Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This is a good recipe for a change but not as exceptional as I expected based on the combination of ingredients. I agree with a previous reviewer that the orange and cinnamon overpower the saffron. If I make this again, I will not add my expensive saffron since I am not sure that it does anything for this dish. I took previous reviewers advice and only cooked the millet for 20 minutes instead of 30 minutes and the consistency was perfect.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
This is a wonderful recipe! I made too much and froze the dough. It perfectly thawed then cooked perfectly. I cooked by own dried chick peas in the pressure cooker which made them very easy to mash by hand.

Three Bean and Artichoke Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
This recipe is a good twist if you are not in the mood for the same old 3 bean salad. I brought this to a potluck bbq and almost everyone went back for thirds of this dish until it was gone.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005
This is the classic recipe! Please try it with tomato soup even though it sounds a little odd! It provides and smooth and creamy consistency that b that blends perfectly with the other flavors (acidic tomato sauce cannot provide this!) Of course adding freshly minced garlic, onion, oregano and paprika were a must for me!

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005

Spicy Thai Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005
Fantastic and soooo easy! Regular coconut milk was perfect. Several people suggested adding more curry paste which is perfect but add it to your own taste! I pre-cooked string beans to use instead and it worked just as well. This is a keeper. My dinner guests went crazy over this recipe!

Multigrain Seeded Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
My husband is German and it is difficult to get authentic German seeded bread even in NYC but this recipe was a must keep! It was perfect. We just dumped the ingredients into the bread machine on the whole wheat cycle!

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
Fabulous! The Curry wasn't too much and I found the recipe perfect just the way it is! I only added a drop of cream to the top of each soup bowl for decoration before serving.

Stuffed Flank Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
Very easy, good and elegant to serve! I used someone's suggestion and make a double batch of gravy with fresh mushrooms and saved half of it to serve with the roast. I also added rosemary to give a better flavor. I pounded and marinated the meat overnight with red wine, steak seasoning and soy sauce and it make the flavor bake through the meat! I baked for only 50 minutes because I like my meat med-well and it was perfect! This recipe was very moist but I must admit that I opened the oven half way through cooking and put the fallen gravey back on top.
